12th Mini Box Clash of Wings is available now!
update 12/06/2018


The Amazoness archetype received some amazing support lately with the addition of Amazoness Onslaught, Amazoness Queen and Amazoness Princess, making this deck actually very viable and consistent on the PvP ladder.

If Amazoness do get new support that would be included in this deck we will revisit this guide when the time comes.

How to Use

There are a lot of people playing Sylvans so more and more people are picking up a deck that does well against it, like Cyber Angels with Saffira, and this deck has an amazing win rate against Cyber Angels. It also does well against Destiny Heroes (which now run Masked Hero Anki). However it has a hard time against Geargias because they can take out your monsters and backrow without attacking.

Amazoness Heirloom & Amazoness Willpower

Now that we have access to Amazoness Princess, these cards have actually become much better. If you already have access to Amazoness Onslaught, you could use Princess’ her effect to search one of these cards instead.

Amazoness Willpower is included instead of another copy of Powerful Rebirth because this card can also bring back Amazoness Queen from the graveyard, also it’s second effect that obligates your Amazoness monster to attack each battle phase isn’t as awful now when paired up with Amazoness Queen.

Amazoness Onslaught

The main goal of this deck is to start out with Amazoness onslaught and start banishing your opponent’s monsters with its effect, that’s why you use Restart or Balance to raise that consistency.

Amazoness Onslaught’s effect will activate after the damage calculations, even if your monster was destroyed by battle, which means the way this card is countered is with cards like Super Rush Headlong. This card’s effect activates even if it was your opponent who attacked, so if you don’t have enough life points you can put your monsters in defense and still banish your opponent’s monsters.

This card also has two other effects. The first one being that you can special summon 1 Amazoness monster during your battle phase and it will gain 500 atk this turn if you do so. This means that if you have this card on the field, and an Amazoness monster in your hand, it’s best to not normal summon during your main phase, but rather go to your battle phase and then special summon it for that attack increase. You can also use this effect during your opponent’s battle phase, this can be very useful for survival. Keep in mind however that this effect can not be activated during the damage step, so if your opponent attacks and you want to special summon an Amazoness monster you need to summon it during the battle step.

Its third and last effect is that when this card you control is destroyed, you can special summon an Amazoness monster from your graveyard. So even if your opponent gets rid of this card , you get some last use out of it.

This card is now even better because you can also special summon Amazoness Queen with it (Onslaught does not have a level restriction).

Amazoness Queen

This is the new level up reward from Mai. This is the only monster with a level higher than 4 in this deck, which doesn’t pose a problem since she can be special summoned from the hand with Amazoness Onslaught, or special summoned from the deck thanks to Amazoness Princess. She has an amazing effect that makes all your Amazoness monsters invincible in battle (but they can still be destroyed through effects like Sylvan Marshalleaf).

A great way to make your board is to summon Amazoness Princess at the start to search out Amazoness Onslaught, and when you attack a monster with a higher attack (while Amazoness Onslaught is activated) you can discard a card to special summon Queen in defense position, so your Princess won’t be destroyed, but their monster will be banished.

Because your monsters can’t be destroyed by battle you do run the risk of your opponent attacking the same weak monster over and over (like Baby Tiger) to remove all your life points, so be careful with what you decide to put in attack position.

Her effect also protects herself from being destroyed in battle.

Amazoness Princess

This card alone will probably be able to put this deck on the tier list. When she is summoned you can add an Amazoness spell or trap from your deck to your hand, most of the time you’ll pick up Amazoness Onslaught, however if you already have one in the hand or on the field you might want to pick up an Amazoness Heirloom or Amazoness Willpower.

Her second effect allows you to summon 1 Amazoness monster from your deck in defense position whenever she attacks, you do need to discard one card to activate this effect. This is a great way to search out your only copies of Amazoness Queen or Baby Tiger. You’ll probably first want to search Amazoness Queen, but if you already have her, Baby Tiger is a great way to gain card advantage as well since he keeps coming back from the Graveyard.

Amazoness Baby Tiger

Another new Amazoness card from the latest box. This card can be special summoned from your hand or graveyard whenever you summon an Amazoness monster. Now the most important part about this card is that it can be special summoned from your graveyard, meaning you can bring this card back over and over again and crash it into your opponent’s monsters (while Onslaught is on the field) to gain card advantage, and use your bigger Amazoness monsters to attack your opponent directly.

Only one copy is included because having too much can make you brick, and you really only need one to use multiple times.

This card does have a very low attack, so you’ll have to be careful with your life points if you attack with this monster, this is why Holy Guard could be a great choice as a skill.

Amazoness Sage & Amazoness Paladin

We settled on these two ladies for our main attackers.

If you do not have 3 copies of Amazoness Paladin you could replace her with Amazoness Swordswoman or Amazoness Tiger.

Amazoness Paladin is here for her high attack, she will always at least have 1800 attack, but she can get up to 2000 maximum which gets over the most popular level 4 drops.

The only way you’ll get use out of Amazoness Sage’s effect is if she is paired up with Amazoness Queen, if she can attack directly, or if you used Windstorm/Curse of Anubis and attack a monster in defense position because in most situations her attack will be lower than all other level 4 monsters (even the level 4 destiny Heroes have more attack).

Enemy Controller

As we all know, overall Enemy Controller is an excellent card and always has been, but it has extra synergy with this deck thanks to Baby Tiger. If you have a Baby Tiger on the field, you could tribute-take one of your opponent’s monsters, then summon another Amazoness monster and bring back Baby Tiger once again, giving you a full board.

Windstorm of Etaqua & Curse of Anubis

Although there might be more expensive, better spells/traps, we wanted to feature these cards in our list to make the deck cheaper but also explain why they should be considered and can be amazing.

Normally if you attack a monster in attack position, or your opponent attacks your monster, both will be removed from the field (one is destroyed by battle and the other is banished by Onslaught), so you basically go one for one. However if you can get a Windstorm/Curse of Anubis of against multiple of your opponent monsters, you can then attack into them on your next turn, and because they will be in defense position, your monsters will survive, and theirs will be banished, giving you a lot of card advantage if used at the right time.

Additional Notes

  • Although our version uses two copies of Powerful Rebirth you can use a more budget version with only one copy.

  • More copies of Amazoness Paladin can be picked up with the UR tickets you get from doing PvP.

  • Other good spells/traps to use with this deck would be cards like Ultimate Providence/Forbidden Chalice, mostly to negate the effect of Sylvans, but because you run a lot of traps, Ultimate Providence can be used to negate an opponent’s trap.

  • With balance, if you want to start (100% of the time) with at least one card of a certain type (monster/spell/trap) you need to run 6 in a 20 card deck. If you want at least two, you need to run 11 in a 20 card deck. So if you run 11 monsters and 9 traps you would be 100% sure to start with 2 monsters and 1 trap (the fourth card will be random).

  • Since we can search out Amazoness Onslaught with Princess , people might find that running only 2 copies of Onslaught is better, however this is difficult to know at this time since there is also a lot of backrow hate being used, and people might start using more copies of Cosmic Cyclone if this deck becomes too dominent.

  • If you are looking for a great card to counter Amazoness deck, try out Chaos Hunter. She will stop the banishing effect and can be easily summoned since Amazoness decks special summon a lot.

Other Useful Cards

Amazoness Tiger
Amazoness Tiger
A great amazoness card that can get its attack quite high, however keep in mind you cannot control this card and Amazoness Baby Tiger at the same time because they are both treated as Amazoness Tiger, and you can only control one at a time.
Amazoness Swords Woman
Amazoness Swords Woman
Can be devastating when paired with Amazoness Queen since she won’t be able to die in battle and she’ll continue to do damage to your opponent.
Amazoness Fighter
Amazoness Fighter
This card kind of is a weaker version of Amazoness Swordswoman, because both make you not take any battle damage, however Swordswoman inflicts that damage on your opponent.
Amazoness Archer
Amazoness Archer
Although it might be situation most times, this card can come in clutch. Imagine having an Amazoness monster with Onslaught on the field, and you have Impenetrable Attack available, you could force your opponent to attack with all monsters meaning they would all be banished.
Half Shut
Half Shut
Has the same purpose as Impenetrable Attack, but has additional synergy with Amazoness Swordswoman.
Impenetrable Attack
Impenetrable Attack
Protects your monster from being destroyed by battle giving you more utility out of Amazoness Onslaught. Can also negate battle damage for a whole battle phase in desperate situations.

I need advice on my post June 26th amazoness deck. I have been doing just fine with amazoness, but now I feel like I don't know what to do. I am kind of worried about Jinzo and I don't know if the balance skill would still help me with ten or even nine monsters.

You should add 2 or 3 Baby Tigers and 1 or 2 Treachetous Trap Hole. You could also trying using Mind Scan.

Right? I went down to Gold these past few seasons to have fun with some decks while being able to earn rewards. Well, I wanted the 100 Gems this time, and now I regret going up to Platinum. Literally 9 out of my first 12 matches were Amazon. The other 3 were Sylvan..... (.i.-_-.i.)

Maybe he mean the combo of Cursed and another bamboo sword, which let you attack directly too instead of using path to treasure(and avoiding the semi-limit of treasure+armor).

Implying that Econ was the reason they're KOG. It's just a very splashable support card, not gamebreaking.

Amazones will still be viable.

i often throw away an onslaught with princess for her effect as you really dont need 3.

You can find good replacements for econ.

Multiple econ on such an extreme swarm deck as amazones was a bit crazy to begin with.

Amazones is probably almost the least nerfed out of the nerfed decks.
The least nerfed being Georgia.

If u run a fusion version with dangerous you don't need 3 celestial. Econ is a loss but not a big deal since most of M-Heros decks were using one or two at most.

SB will destroy this deck after the update easily.

Good thing they didn't limit Onslaught, else this deck would be dead(to easy to destroy/banish such an important card).

There are many ways to avoid(win against) this deck:
Extrem damage.
Monster removal(resource war).
To some extent backrow removal(if only 1 onslaught).

From 10 confrontations with my GB I won 2-3 w/o any of the above methods but a good starting hand(defensive cards+starting first).

No, Onslaught will be SEMI-Limited, meaning you'll be able to put only 2 copies while LIMITED would mean 1.

Still means no Econ option which sucks. Chalice is great, but I found Econ so much better with how you flood the field so easily.

Limiting or banning cards is not solve anything.
Better if you thinking how to counter the opponent deck.

There are my few tips for beginners:
- remove Onslaught from the field with Cosmic Cyclone, Double Cyclone or Storm
- if you use Antimagic Arrows your opponent cant use Onslaughts effect (no banish), so you can kill its monsters if it doesnt have Queen on the field
- block or kill Princess before she attack, so she cant summon the Queen
- if Queen on the field you can kill her with Man-eater bug or some "D.D." monsters who can banish. You can use some spell cards too: Tribute to The Doomed, Offerings to the Doomed, Dark Core. The last one is banish the opponent monster, so your opponent cant resummon from the graveyard
- put 1-2 Chaos Hunter in your deck -> your opponent cant banish cards
